Shoe and apparel retailer Johnston & Murphy has opened in Towson Town Center in Towson.

The new 1,842-square-foot store, which opened Friday, is located on the mall’s second level in the Crate & Barrel wing, mall officials said.

The Towson store, the sixth in Maryland, sells business, leisure and loungewear apparel for men and women.

Johnston & Murphy started in 1850 as a men’s retailer but introduced a line of women’s shoes, clothing and accessories five years ago.

UPDATE:Another new location for Johnston & Murphy is a kiosk on concourse A/B at Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport, where the retailer also has a full-sized store on concourse D. The 165-square-foot kiosk opened about a week ago, said a spokeswoman for Airmall USA, the airport's retail manager. The kiosk carries men's shirts, jackets, blazers and accessories, such as belts and wallets, as well as women's jackets, blazers, handbags and belts.

Other Maryland stores are in Westfield Shopping Town Annapolis, The Mall in Columbia and The Gallery at Harborplace in Baltimore city. Shoe stores and department stores in the area also carry the Johnston & Murphy brand.
